GULFPORT, Miss. — On Aug. 11, a car with a woman and her granddaughter T-boned a semi truck, resulting in a huge explosion.

Truck driver David Fredericksen had a dashcam that recorded the accident (the time stamp on the video is wrong; the accident occurred Aug. 11). Then Fredericksen jumped into action, as his son explained in the video description posted to YouTube.

Everyone survived the accident, though the woman broke a leg.
